Here are the last two photos of my Massey-Harris tank story.
One shows an M5 sat in the long grass as if waiting to pounce on an unexpecting enemy.
The second is a line up of four tanks. The two on the left are T24s which were apparently the prototypes of the M24 "Chaffee" tank. The two on the right are M36s. I am not sure of the origins of these - they might not be M-H and just brought in for comparison. However they were classed as "tank destroyers" and not a medium tank. Note that famous water tower in the background!
There's a lot I don't know about this tank classification and terminology - it would be nice if a military man out there could educate us.
Now we urgently and anxiously await Gary's visit to Racine to see the tank near there and look for the water towers, and that M5 he has found in IN.
Back on the UK front I have stablished contact with the UK's major tank museum at Bovington Park in Dorset. They have an M5 Stuart and an M24 Chaffee but both made by Cadillac and not M-H unfortunately; also an M5 made by American Car and Foundry Co.
If I learn any more about MH tanks I will be back on here. In the meantime maybe the Canadians can spring a surpise on us and have an M-H tank on parade at the Massey National Paisley in August - a sight to behold!!!!!
